Why do I feel like I am going to get the shaft with either of them? I was counting on the viewsonic but since it seems to never be released I am tired of waiting. I guess I better just roll the dice and bend over....
Gsync version is coming out late August, no eta on Freesync version.
Let me give you some context to how I got this. A vendor I work with is a preferred partner of Viewsonic, its the brand we buy for users. I asked the vendor is she could get me some info regarding these since I was thinking about them before I got my BenQ. She contacted them and and sent me this.
Just spoke with Viewsonic. Here is what they know.
Due in late August. Based on data reports they think they MAY be shipping by 8/25/16
No information, no launch date so far.
I will be able to sell this monitor. If it is for work use I can get you a demo to look at for 30 days, once they are available.
I would just need to know approximately how many you think you may purchase if you like it.
If it is personal use, I can’t get a demo. But, I should be able to get you an extra discount for qty 1.
I can do that a few times a year on personal purchase for my best customer !
I decided not to wait and got the BenQ XL2730Z for $329.Edited by nagle3092 - 7/29/16 at 12:33pm
